Even though I had always been content with the stock Notes app, I wished to have some interesting functionality to get the best use of it. As compared to other similar apps like Simplenote, Notes lacked quite a few user-friendly features.
Fortunately, the Notes app has really improved a lot in recent times. Now, you can directly access your photo library and even be able to capture photos and videos right from this app.
The photos/videos which you take in Notes are not automatically saved to your iPhone Camera Roll. Supposing you have captured a cool video while making any note on your device, won’t you like to see it in your camera roll to edit it as per your liking? Yes, you would.
How to Auto Save Photos/Videos Taken in Notes to Photos App on iPhone/iPad
Note: Make sure your iPhone is running the latest iOS version (iOS 9 or later).
Step #1. Launch Settings app on your iPhone/iPad.
Step #2. Next up, scroll down and tap on Notes.
Step #3. Toggle on the switch next to Save Media to Photos.
That’s it! Nowonwards, on every photo or video you will take in the Notes app will be saved to Photos app automatically.
Unlike Evernote and Simplenote, the Notes app only syncs with iCloud. Hopefully, Apple makes it even more user-friendly adding some of the other important features in it.
iOS 10 with several impressive features is touted as the biggest ever update. As it is still in developer beta, we expect a lot of changes and improvements by the time it is publicly released this fall.
The apps which have been vastly improved in iOS 10 are Messages, Music, Photos, Maps, and Safari. The public beta of the newest iOS update is due to be released early next month.
